Our Story

Hello. My wife Amy and I own Cellar 426 Winery located 3 miles off I-80 exit 426 near Ashland, Nebraska. We will be beginning construction on our tasting room and processing room this fall with anticipated opening date of May 2011. Amy and I tend to the grapes and other fun chores, while both working full time jobs. We get help from our son Erich who will turn fifteen in October as well as friends and family. There are currently 2 1/2 acres of grapes (Marquette, Frontenac, Frontenac Gris, LaCrosse, and Brianna) on our 20 acre site. The grapes were planted in 2006 and 2007 and we now are in the middle of our second harvest. Last week we harvested 550 lbs of LaCrosse!
